    Anyone have one of these systems or are familiar with them? I have a 15'x25' finished basement and need supplemental heat.

    It will run off propane and the tank will be placed along the outside of my house. It also requires a 3" vent, which I can hide by boxing it in.

    I haven't gotten the price yet but I have a feeling it will be expensive ($2000-$2500). We have an electric heat pump in our house and the only 2 returns are in the ceiling. With an open floor plan, the heat rises upstairs before we feel it. We have considered electric radiant floor heat but are using carpet and it is not safe or efficient.

    Anyway...just brainstorming and wondering if anyone else has advice.

    Go to Lowes...Get an electric Fireplace...under 500$...

    It heats my basement perfectly...and its 20x30...I got one and built an entertainment center around and have my tv sitting on top of it with shelves for my dvds on one side and all my equipment on the other...

    Well worth it...I have the vents in the ceiling too...Once the furnace kicks on...Its heats it up to like 60 degrees...but it wont go much past that...I turn the fireplace on...Its warms up 70 in no time...Install ceiling fans to circulate all the heat back down in the room and you'll be set...
